Country's Bland Nominees
Watching recent Country Music award shows, I'm starting to worry about who will emerge as a future Country Music Hall of Famer. There are good acts, but few legends. Take a look at these names. All have had tons of hits (which can get you in the Country Hall more than the Rock Hall): Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, Brooks & Dunn, Faith Hill. Do any of these jump out at you and cry Hall of Famer. None are original and like most of today's Country hitmakers, pretty bland. But it's this generation of artists that will make up the Country Hall once they induct Reba, Garth, Randy Travis and a couple other 80's acts. The 90's ones will be tough to judge. Having a lot of hits will help, because none will reach greatness. Me I'll vote for Miranda Lambert.
